Meeting the timetable for a construction project always starts with the best of intentions. But even a good plan can turn into chaos when work goes over budget and starts to fall behind schedule. Scanning concrete, removing rebar, and demolishing old structures are often much more dangerous than people not involved in the concrete-working industry realize. Here’s a guide to saving time and getting the job done as promised.
Making a Plan
Nothing goes smoothly without a plan. However, that plan needs to be flexible as it will probably need to be adjusted once work begins, and circumstances change on the job site is occupied. By planning, it is possible to avoid unexpected delays altogether. You won’t have to spend time searching for tools, spend extra time making sure every cut and pull is done correctly, or worry about waiting for permits to come in. Pre-planning is also a good idea when storms are in the forecast since it can be dangerous to be working outdoors when there is thunder and lightning overhead, especially when dealing with metal components that could potentially function as rods that will catch the lightning and electrocute even one person on your crew.
Keeping Tools and Equipment Ready
When you keep tools and equipment at the ready, you can also save more time on the job site. Cutting down labor costs means that you can afford to pay your employees more, which will help improve crew morale and motivate them to work faster and smarter at the same time. Avoiding heat exhaustion is a sensible way to enhance workflow and ensure that there isn’t time lost due to missing tools or equipment that requires urgent maintenance before it can be used again.
Prioritizing Supply Deliveries
Sometimes part of the problem is that your employees are waiting for fresh supplies. Since this can slow down any project no matter what type of job site you are on, prioritizing deliveries is another smart approach to saving valuable time. Jackhammer blades, rings of keys and cans of gasoline are just as important as helmets, hard hats, and steel-toed boots.
